How He Asked
It was a regular Friday, I was at the salon doing my hair because I was going to have “dinner” with my family. It’s a fancy dinner so dress up they said. I leave the salon and head home and get ready. We head downtown to “dinner”. We arrive at the fairmont Hotel in downtown Dallas. A young lady comes for us and asks us to follow her upstairs to the rooftop, in my head I’m thinking “wow, my family is really going all out tonight.” We head up to the rooftop my family walking behind me, and I’m walking behind the young lady that is leading us.
She turns and says “ok, keep going straight and at the corner make a left and you’ll see your table.” so, I continue walking and as I’m getting closer to the corner I hear music, I didn’t think anything of it because of the dinner but to my surprise the music was a quartet outside on the rooftop. I not only see and hear the quartet but I see my boyfriend standing in the middle of a huge heart that was made with roses, and candles that have outlined the heart.
I cover my mouth in shock and immediately begin crying. I approach him, and he began talking to me and telling me how much I mean to him, and how he wants to spend the rest of his life with me, the tears do not stop.
Finally, he gets down on one knee and asks me to marry him. It has been the best day of my life so far. He went above and beyond. I cannot thank God enough for the man he’s blessed me with.
